unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and b

's in charge, and that he is not being -- that his foreign policy is working instead of the fact that it seems to be unraveling as we watch the world scene. we see that country after country -- i don't know how many it's been, 15 or 20, where the people have been burning american flags, have been burning pictures of the president of the united states, have been attacking embassies in one way or another, demonstrating an opposition to the united states and to the policies that this president has put forward. and that's got to be disturbing, but you're in the middle of a political campaign, so it makes the administration look bad. my impression is that they're trying to spin things in a way that will mute the difficulties we face in the world, and they're serious difficulties. >> greta: how do you describe his foreign policy? >> i think that the foreign policy of this administration, for 3 1/2, 4 years now, has been one of a step back. the phrase that came out of the white house, to leads from behind, which you can't lead from behind. leaders lead from the front. the economic management of our c

a large part of the president's foreign policy position in this campaign. so i think a lot of it was done too electoral politics to cover the president's failure and try to go along with this false narrative that he had in effect defeated al-qaeda when he hadn't. >> that begs the question, if she was sticking to a planned script, it leads one to ask, who was telling ambassador rice, and jay carney, to use those words, spontaneous incident, when officials knew it wasn't? >> we need an investigation. that's why i'm saying right now, the person out there, the person who was going to get all the glory, doing ought the morning shows, was ambassador rice. to send a clear message to the world, to the american people that this will not be tolerated, ambassador rice should resign, but also we should investigate and find out how high up this went. i would hope the administration would voluntarily come forward and say why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there, yet they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start. >> what about the fact that the f

obama's foreign policy in a blistering speech, congressman ryan comparing the anti-american violence in the middle east to the 1979 attack on the u.s. embassy and hostage taking in tehran. he says president obama's foreign policy is to blame. rnc chair reince priebus joins us. nice to see you, sir. >> hey. he's right. you blue at barack obama, not only did he make a whole host of promises in this country that he didn't fulfill -- remember back in 2007, it was barack obama who made the sales pitch to our country balls of his background, living in indonesia, in a muslim country, that he was going to bring a special type of diplomacy to northern africa and the middle east. now we're seeing the results of barack obama. now, he's the guy that -- that said that mitt romney was shooting first and aiming later when mitt romney criticized the fact that barack obama had to walk back the statements made from an embassy in egypt. now the media is fixated on asking questions about that, but they should be asking questions to barack obama as to why would you as president of the united states have

the ball when it comes to foreign affairs and foreign policy. for him to admit, yep, there was a terrorist attack on my watch, we did have warnings and our ambassador was murdered, that's not helpful to his reelection campaign. >> brian: but he did say america was attacked. he didn't say september 11. he doesn't link it to terror, but he did say for the first time we were attacked on tuesday. >> steve: sure. so what's going on with the president? john sununu, great defender of presidential nominee mitt romney, he was on with hannity last night. he had this to say about the president's reaction. >> look, let me tell what you the big problem with this president is, in my opinion: he is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. when he doesn't go and attend 60% of the detailed presidential daily briefings that come from the c.i.a. and thinks he can just skim the summary paper on his ipad instead of sitting down and engaging in what i -- i was in a white house with george herbert walker bush. he took that brief every day. george w. bush took it every day and i believe that bill clinton took

in the last week of october is going to be focused on foreign policy. we may see it at the end of the election. >> gregg: great to see you. thanks very much. >> heather: with the clock ticking down most polls show president obama with a slight lead over governor mitt romney. as history shows the late september leads doesn't mean a win in november. mike emanuel explains. >> polls go up and down. >> history shows that late september leads can evaporate by election day. in 1968 hubert humphrey was down 15 points. nixon won it was less than 1 percent. in 1976, jimmy carter had a 33-point lead over gerald ford. three debates, ford had cut the lead to 5 points and led in the final polls and narrowly lost. jamie carter had a consistent advantage over ronald reagan but the final presidential debate changed everything leading to a reagan landslide. now he is building a lead in key battleground states, a consultant who worked for jimmy carter, finding the right sample to survey can be tricky. >> we know from exit polls that republicans tend to respond to these polls less than oftentimes particularly to

's foreign policy spokesman to the world as ambassador to the u.n. she is a very nice person. very smart. but the fact is she gave out information either intentionally or unintentionally reading or wrong. now, clearly she was put out by the administration. who feed her -- who fed her. what she was supposed to say. that's what we need to know. was it a chief of staff? >> right. that's still the question. >> that's what pat buchanan. saying this whole thing was planned by the administration. had to come from somewhere. listen. >> >> let's go to susan rice. five days after this terrorist attack. she is booked on knive news shows and uses exact terminology. not spontaneous. premeditated planned at all. told to go out there by people must have known the intelligence and therefore using these people, these administration people to deceive and to mislead unless they were utterly stupid about what happened. that we ought to find out who told ms. rice to go out and say that. who told carney to go out and say that. because we now know it was utterly false. >> does she get off the hook as a result

the two world leaders, what do you think? >> this is the longest running soap opera in foreign policy, bb versus obama. of course he had to do something to try to make it-- make the damage less, less damaging than it was. he did not have the 13 bilaterals that he had the last time in new york. obama did not have any and the media are saying that's perfectly okay because the man is running for office. that's an explanation, about you to accept that on its face is i think, a bit-- >> world leaders speak their minds at the united nations. how did the media react? >> as president of our country, and commander-in-chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day and i will always defend their right to do so. >> president obama takes center stage at the u.n., delivering his view on world issues. did the media buy what he was selling? and how did the media react to other world leaders? and some of the crazy things they said. find out next on news watch. people we rely on in the morning can rely on dulcolax laxative tablets overnight. they give you predictabl

personal relationships do matter in foreign policy. and there was an article in "the new york times" yesterday which caught our eye here. it had a quote from a middle east official. it said, you can't fix these problems by remote control. president obama doesn't have friends who are world leaders. he doesn't believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames. you can't accomplish what you want to accomplish with such an impersonal style. do you agree the president has an impersonal style? >> not at all. i think he has met extensively with his counterparts. when you look at bibi netanyahu, i don't think there's a world leader he's met with more. he picked up the phone, they had an hour long conversation. this is a scheduling income patability. he spoke with leaders from egypt, libya, yemen, a number of other countries just last week in the wake of events in the heeft. this is an everyday part of his job. and he takes -- he relishes it. he does it with gusto. he has very strong relations with a number of these leaders. >> yet there is a feeling that he doesn't have deep personal relati
